This weekend Buckingham Palace opened its doors for the annual summer exhibition. Its main attraction ‘The Royal Wedding Dress Exhibition’ was previewed on Friday by the Queen and Duchess of Cambridge.

The pair strolled around the exhibit together, chatting about the many pieces featured. It was fantastic to see the Queen and Kate talk as naturally together as it gave a great sense of friendliness between the two.

The exhibit looks incredible, however it came as quite a surprise when BBC footage caught the Queen comment on how ‘horrid’ the Duchesses now infamous wedding dress looks displayed on a headless mannequin.

An awkward but fetching moment, which made me giggle a little. I’m looking forward to see the exhibit for myself sometime over the summer.

Annette's websites of the week

Excited by today’s news of The Royal Wedding Dress exhibition? We have the perfect website for you. The Royal Collection site is the official site to purchase tickets to the annual summer show at Buckingham Palace, and contains endless information about the event and other exhibitions taking place in royal venues throughout the year.

I’ve found myself looking at lots of different occasions; I really like the sound of ‘Treasures from the royal library, Windsor Castle’. So this site could be a really great place to find some inspiration for day trips.

Plus the site also host an official Royal Collection shop, which is sales beautiful designed royal pieces such as chinaware and decorative pieces. Perfect for gifts or a great way to celebrate a great year for the royal family.



 Earlier this week I blogged about the Parent Bloggers Network hosted by, an online hub of great blogs which are all written by parents who are willing to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with others.

I think the blogging network is a brilliant idea, as finding blog you like can be tasking. And, having explored more of I was really impressed.

The main premises is parenting and offering realistic advice. But what I like most about the site is how practical everything appears to be. With a region tool, viewers can adapt the site to suit their needs and get information which is accessible to them- a really helpful, friend and down to earth site.

  • Paddy Jones, Oldest Salsa Dancer

A new feature on day time TV show This Morning called ‘OAP of the week’ brought 77 year old paddy Jones to our attention this morning. Paddy from the West Midlands, who now lives in Spain, is the oldest salsa dancer in the world.

Returning to dance after her husband passed away, Paddy has seen great success despite her age. She even won the Spanish version of Britain’s Got Talent after a jaw dropping performance.

I’ve chosen to include a video of Paddy, which was film 2 years ago following her entry into the world record books. To see her dancing so wonderfully is simply inspiring with such a positive outlook on life I think Paddy is someone we should all aspire too.

The Royal Wedding was without a doubt the event of 2011. Here at Bath-Knight we all enjoyed the royal couples big day and my blog was host to countless ‘royal wedding’ themed posts, which all got great responses.

It’s fair to say that Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, in which she transformed into the Duchess of Cambridge, captured the nation. The photographs of Kate emerging from the car outside Westminster Abbey have become icon, as we all gasped with sheer joy to see how beautiful the new royal looked.

It’s with great excitement that everyone is invited to see the Duchesses dress up close as a variety of royal wedding pieces are going on display at the annual summer exhibition at Buckingham Palace.

Visitors will be able to see the Alexander McQueen wedding dress, which is displayed in the Ball Room and surprising not behind a glass screen. Along with the Duchesses size 5.5 wedding shoes, wedding day earrings and also the Cartier tiara which was lent by the Queen.

Even better the wedding cake, which is cut by the royal couple, is on display. It’s said that the top layer is a replica as Prince William and Kate decided to keep the top layer as many do traditionally.

The summer show at Buckingham Palace this year looks to be a wonderful event with reports this morning suggesting that tickets are selling quickly. I hope I get a chance to visit myself to relive the enjoyment of the royal wedding.

It is wonderful to see the official royal wedding photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The photos were taken by photographer Hugo Burnand shortly after the newlyweds arrive from their wedding service at Westminster Abbey.

The ‘Royal Route’ which both William and Kate will make on their big day, goes past some of London’s most recognisable landmarks. I’m sharing the official route along with some great images of landmarks, which you might be able to see if you are in London for the big event or just watching at home.
